Trump loves the media, and more importantly, the media loves Trump.
Before Donald Trump was a presidential candidate, many of his interactions with the media were not appropriate for the president of the United States. However, today, I believe Trump’s interactions with the media have improved, though gradual, through positive posts on Twitter, Facebook and in many news articles.
One thing most people can agree on is that Trump has no filter. He willingly speaks his mind without regard to anyone else, which has gotten him in trouble in the past. For example, Trump recently said, “As you know, I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth.”
Although that statement may be true in some sense, I believe Trump could have relayed the message in a more professional manner.
Even though Trump hasn’t been positively consistent with his media presence, his interactions with the media have been a huge hit and had an impact internationally, making him well known regardless of opinion.
Some say there is no such thing as negative media, because if people are talking, they care. I am not condoning his negative actions in the past. Some of the things were inappropriate, degrading, rude and dishonest, but I do believe his intentions for our country and the American people are pure.
Today, with the help of Trump’s publicity team, he handles the media and much of the negative news about his actions well. The media is always in a constant battle with Trump mostly because, while the media is trying to portray Trump as an incompetent psycho, Trump shows the media how spacey and biased people are.
It is clear that Donald Trump has had a continuous battle with the media, but Trump has improved and is consistently handling himself in a way our president should.
